Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors!

This Week at Calvary United Methodist

  
     

   The Worship Committee would like to have a monthly list of Birthdays and Anniversaries published in the Monthly Reminder. Let us hear from you if you have any special days that we can include. We would only publish those for which we have been given authorization. So, let us know if you want yours listed! We would begin this with the next issue, so if you have an April birthday or anniversary, let us know!!!   
 
 
 We have been informed that Virgil Matzen who has been the Head usher for many years has decided to step down. Virgil has done a wonderful job with scheduling ushers and instructing them in the tasks that are part of that ministry. We thank you, Virgil for your many years of service. At the last Administrative Board meeting, Jackie Kallenberger has volunteered to assume the position of “Head usher”. She may be contacting you in the future regarding helping with this ministry. Please give prayerful consideration to serving in this capacity.

FOOD PANTRY UPDATE: The Buffalo Food Pantry serving Buffalo, Walcott, Blue Grass and southwest Davenport has added some additional hours of service. They currently are open every Tuesday morning 9 am to 12 noon. They have added an evening pickup on Thursdays from 5 pm to 7 pm which began on April 15th. This is located at the same building as City Hall at the north side of the building. 329 Dodge Street, Buffalo Iowa. You will need to bring your ID and proof of residency. Masks are required. 

 
 

 

Altar Organizational Guild

If you would be interested in helping to organize an altar guild, please see anyone on the worship committee for details. This would include, changing the banners, wreaths, seasonal/memorial flowers on altar, Lent and Advent candle set-up, helping to arrange flowers such as Easter lilies, poinsettias (help to water and deadhead), making sure the cross is prepared for Lent/Easter, including the Good Friday service, cross removal after the season, making sure the communion table is moved for communion and put back in its place after, help Carol Snay only if needed with set up and removal of elements after communion, moving baptismal fount and working with Pastor Joy for water and towel needed for this special occasion, making sure the candle is readied for the baptism, removal of water and replace fount after, ready candles for the Christmas Eve candlelight service then storing them after the service, and to help Launa fill candles and change paraments only when called upon to do so. It’s a big job for one person, so help is needed to create an organized schedule of duties and all other duties as assigned.

FELLOWSHIP HALL DECORATED TREE

 

The sign-up sheet is posted by the “Music Notes” bulletin board in fellowship hall to decorate the tree. Sign up soon for your favorite month. We have plenty of decorations for you to use. Let’s keep this tree decorated, as there are several who do stop by church to visit. Plus our little pre-school children love to see the tree all decked out too.

As a reminder, we want to be transparent with our members and constituents regarding all of our business. Meeting dates are posted in the bulletin and Monthly Reminder. All are welcome to sit in on any meeting to ask questions, and listen, with the exception of SPRC. If you are interested in reading Administrative Board minutes, those can be made available to you to come and ask Donna in the office and read while in the church. Regarding finances, Phyllis Arp is glad to answer any question you might have that she might have answers to, finance reports may be read while at church, and again can be made available by talking with Donna.
